Overview

Caring for children is an incredibly rewarding experience that requires specialist qualities and skills, alongside resilience. As a children’s nurse you will be caring for children and young people from birth up to the age of 18, including children with physical and mental health issues.

During your time with us, you will gain knowledge and understanding of complex relationships between the personal, socio-economic and cultural influences that impact upon a child’s health and well-being. Nursing and technological competence will be achieved by applying professional knowledge, skills, values and attitudes taught by our expert lecturers. It is these values and skills that will help you to empower children, young people and their families in making vital health decisions

The programme is 50% theoretical and 50% clinical practice. We use a range of teaching and learning strategies in a mix of taught seminars, skills sessions, simulated practice and clinical placements designed to meet individual student’s needs. Simulated practice occurs in our clinical skills laboratories and allows you to practice and reflect in a safe environment. Feedback from our students confirms that simulated practice has increased their confidence and competence, as well as prepared them to be reflective qualified practitioners. Clinical placements will take place in a range of settings where children and young people might access health and welfare services including leading NHS trusts, community teams, and voluntary/independent organisations.

Being a children’s nursing student at the University of Greenwich means you will receive a first class education and be fully supported throughout your journey.
